This changing my header thing is SO much fun! Every time I do it I think of my friend.
It occurred to me the other day, that these days will one day pass away. Already so many of the wonderful people I've met have stopped blogging and gone to another outlet.
....and there are probably others out there that I don't even know about. Each time I get a notice from Face book, of course I go look..and each time this happens I realize more and more where my blogger friends have disappeared to.
No problem, I can still chat with them. :) As long as they are happy...:) it's a good thing.
When I start putting things out for Valentine's Day or whatever, I keep changing things on a daily basis. I tweak here and I tweak there..
I fiddle with this, and turn that.... THANK you, Becky, for my little pillows! You are so talented.
Each year when they come out, I think about you..and what we share. And Balisha...We have all lost a precious child.
You can see my Sandy in the photo below...just shortly before I lost her! Two of her sisters are on either side of her. They went to spend time with her. It will be two years this month. She visits me often, I feel it.
I even scream in total disbelief when I am alone...it helps ...for the moment.
Time heals they say.
Time heals they say.
No.these things didn't stay here. The little dish got filled with red candy hearts..and the little heart box got moved to the breakfast bar with the rest of the Valentine boxes....
Every single thing you see in this photo came from garage sales.. I left everything as it was and just added the hearts. See the sparkly hearts I added to my flower arrangement? The lamp, NO, that came from Penny @ The Pleasures of Home. The old lamp and high chair came from garage sales..and the dolly of course came from my friend. The pretty book that didn't quite make it into the picture...garage sale. Even the cloth on the table..yep..same place.
Nuff of stuff!!
I have news..:) Just waiting for the right time... and if you know me at all, you KNOW how prolific my family is.. :) Yep!!
Where was I???
OH...yes..I guess the time is now.
My EIGHTH great grandchild, a baby boy, will be born this August! Could I be happier?
Adam and Cristina...Grandma is SO proud! Congratulations and THANK YOU!
And so it goes. I won't live to see him become a man..but it's just good knowing the beat goes on and at least I will get to see him. I'm so delighted!
AND seven of my grown grandchildren are not even married yet.
Lot's more greats to come.
